“Turning a hobby into a career requires asking yourself what makes you qualified to turn this idea into a business,” says Deborah Sweeney, CEO of MyCorporation.com, who has worked with clients who want to monetize their hobbies.
Sweeney recommends asking yourself two questions:
- How do I bring a unique perspective to the table that interests audiences?
- How have I established myself as an emerging expert in this industry?
“You should be able to claim a space as a thought leader, an influencer or a researcher within that hobby’s industry to stand out and show that you are seriously invested.” Sweeney says.
